Laptop to TV

I have hook my laptop to my tv using VGA cable., the pc shows on the screen of the TV when the laptop starts up and goes into windows xp, but once it finishes booting into windows the TV turns back to the blue screen and show it in DPMS stand BY. What do I have to do to keep it showing on the TV screen?

Does the laptop have a function (fn) key along with a picture of a monitor (possibly an F1-F12) key, that in used combination switches from Laptop to TV or Both?

You have to set up the screen resolution to match what the TV is capable of displaying; ie, if it is an HDTV, then HD resolutions are 1280x720 or 1920x1080.
